Human Trafficking: ‘The Slave Across The Street’ (VIDEO)

In Awareness, Child Sex Trafficking, Forced Prostitution, Human Trafficking, Sex Trafficking on June 6, 2013 at 10:45 am

At 15, Theresa Flores was used as a sex slave at night to repay a debt, all the while living at home with her unknowing family and attending school during the day with her traffickers.

Now living in Ohio, Flores travels frequently to talk about her experiences and her escape.

She’ll be in Michigan June 27-28 with stops in Greenville, Mount Pleasant, Grand Rapids, Lansing and Detroit to share her story in her book, “The Slave Across The Street,” and to build awareness about human trafficking.

“The biggest challenge for us right now, we find, is the awareness piece,” says Emmons, noting that trafficking is widely considered to be a problem in Third World countries. “Folks are just not cognizant of what’s around them and what’s happening.”
